#561 - Courage, Part 1

"Behold I command thee, take courage, and be strong. Fear not and be not dismayed: because the Lord thy God is with thee in all things whatsoever thou shalt go to." - Joshua 1: 9

"Great courage will be needed in the days ahead. You will pray much, and the Father will counsel you on your next recourse. Spread the message, My child, with great haste.
    "Did I not warn you that the agents of darkness would try to stop the truth? Have no fear, My child. It is not man that you should fear. Man has lost his way; he is in deep darkness. Darkness has entered into the hearts of many. Many in My Son's House now have gone down the road to darkness. Pray for them, My child. Do not castigate them in any way, but pray that they may be given the light." - Our Lady, November 1, 1973

"I promise you all, when you wear My brown Scapular, you shall not be condemned to hell. I repeat: If you pass on over the veil and are wearing the brown Scapular, you shall not see the fires of hell.
    "My child and My children, it will take great courage for you to fight, for the others in your parish, and those who are your friends, who do not have the courage of their convictions--courage to go forth and promote the brown Scapular. I do not go back on My words to mankind: I have often said to the world that if you wear My Scapular, you will be saved.   
"To understand this better, My child, I will converse further with you. Now this be it known: that the Scapular cannot keep you from purgatory. I purposely gave this knowledge to Saint Simon Stock, the knowledge of the existence of a sacramental so powerful that a man who would fall fast into hell shall escape, through the mercy of his God, and the existence of a shadow of faith that he may have." - Our Lady, September 14, 1985

"We have chosen to give this message through you, My child and My children in the United States, for We find that there is much courage in the hearts of your countrymen. There is a time for everything in the plan of Heaven. Much has been given in photographs, My child, in the past. They are for now, for your future is now." - Our Lady, October 2, 1975

"Remember, My children, in the days ahead, your great comfort is the knowledge that there is no death. Life will continue beyond the veil for all. Many will be asked to sacrifice in the name of the Lord. But how great a sacrifice is this? Very little, in comparison to the great reward that lies for him over the veil.
    "Pray, My children, for strength. It will take great courage to remain in the fold in the days ahead; but your courage shall be the cross and the knowledge of the truth.
    "Remember, do not become a worshiper of the creature, but of the Creator; for the creature is the world, and the world is satan. The Creator is your God, and His world is the Kingdom of Paradise. This choice will be yours to make. Each and every one of you will have to make that choice soon. No man shall be lost unless he is lost of his own free will." - Jesus, June 18, 1980

"Many shall be brought back through suffering in the days ahead. Do not fall into the fallacy that many give out now, My children. They try to over-build you with optimism. They delude you into peace and brotherhood, an aura of peace and brotherhood, when there is no peace and there is no brotherhood; for they have removed the knowledge of your God from among you.
    "The peace promised by My Mother will not come at this time. Man has set himself on the road to great tribulation.
    "All who are of well spirit will have nothing to fear. They will go through this crucible of suffering with hope and courage, for they will have their armor, a knowledge of the value of prayer, and hope in the eternal Kingdom.
    "It will be a battle, My children, I assure you, a battle such as never has been seen upon your earth, and never will be seen again. All will enter into this battle. Every man, woman, and child shall feel its effects." - Jesus, December 6, 1975

"My child, I understand the great torment of spirit that you have undergone the past several days. It is only through experience, My child, that you could fully understand the reign of satan in the world. When satan takes over a human, the nature, the personality of that individual will change.
    "The Almighty Father in Heaven shall give to many insights in knowledge, discernment of the spirit. As I told you in the past, My child and My children, every man, woman, and child shall be marked by the sign of the cross or the mark of the beast.
    "My child, as knowledge is given to you and to My children, you must pray more because this knowledge shall place a great emotional strain upon you. In a short measure, a small measure, My children, you will be able to understand the trials, the suffering, but the courage given in the light to My Son and I as We traveled upon earth doing the will of the Eternal Father.
    "The Eternal Father has sent Me to you as a Mediatrix between God and man to warn you that you must change your ways that offend your God much. For countless earth-years, My children, I have returned among you to counsel you and warn you that you were approaching the days of the latter times. Many saints shall come forward through the days ahead." - Our Lady, July 15, 1978

"You ask Me, My child, for a sign for the world, a major miracle. No, My child, you are not being presumptuous, but you must give to the will of the Father.
    "Perseverance and courage will be necessary in the days ahead. The strength and grace will be given to continue the mission.
    "The Father has sent Me as a Mediatrix to bring this warning to the world. You must turn from your present ways that offend the Father much, for you are bringing upon mankind a great Chastisement. Many warnings have been given in the past, but they have gone by unrecognized as coming from the Father." - Our Lady, July 25, 1974

"Yes, My child, the Message from Heaven has reached the Eter­nal City of Rome. You will not know until the end of time the full plan of the Eternal Father. In a war, My child, a war of human nature as well as the battle of the spirits, there is One Who will guide during this battle. The Eternal Father in Heaven knows the plan of all. In your human nature, you must not ques­tion, but you must receive, accept, and not question the direc­tion of the Eternal Father to you.
    "Do not be ashamed, My children, to shed tears with My Son. Weep with Him; pray with Him; please, make Him happy. All who have received much, much is expected of them.
    "Do not be concerned, My child, of not having the great num­bers of beads requested in your correspondence. We have sent now a manner of construction of these beads, the beads of prayer that will go throughout your world.
    "Yes, My child, your letters have reached their destina­tions. Now you must pray for these poor souls that the grace shall be given to them by the Eternal Father to turn from their ways, that they shall receive the courage to come forward and ac­knowledge their God in truth." - Our Lady, March 18, 1976

"You will read all past messages, My children, and learn by them.
    "My armies, the blue armies from Heaven, are gathering throughout the world. My children, have great perseverance and courage in the knowledge that the victory, the ultimate victory, will be with My Son and the armies from Heaven. You are all now undergoing a great test." - Our Lady, September 7, 1977

"Know that the forces of evil have gathered to try to silence My voice, My child. I cry great tears of sorrow upon mankind. When the Father chose you, My child, He knew of your perseverance and your great courage in faith. Therefore, We depend much upon the message being sent through you, My child, throughout the world.
    "Satan has the power to attack your body. You will increase your internal prayers to fight his agents who have set themselves to drain your strength. I have asked you to remain in seclusion. This is for your protection and for the propagation of the message.
    "The message, My child, that I have entrusted to you will be rejected by many. Know and learn a simple lesson. I do not speak to you in riddles or symbols, but in plain truth in the light. Those in the darkness will not understand, for they have not penetrated this darkness of spirit." - Our Lady, August 5, 1974

"You cannot understand the ways of Heaven, or the knowledge of the Eternal Father. Therefore, you must follow the direction from Heaven carefully. Prayer, penance, and atonement--you have been given a time to change. The time is running out.
    "Those who are of well spirit will have nothing to fear, My child, for they will go through this crucible of suffering with more hope and courage, knowing that the eventual victory is over the veil with the Eternal Father. There will be many martyrs in the conflagration that lies ahead. It will truly be the cross.
    "You must, as a child of God, pick up your cross and carry it, even if it is heavy. Suffering shall be a way of life soon for many. It is all in the plan of the Eternal Father to separate the sheep from the goats. You are all being tested, My children. Man, in his free will, will either accept or reject the offer from the Eternal Father of Heaven." - Our Lady, August 14, 1975

"Pray, My child and My children, a constant vigilance of prayer. The world is in its most dire time, and subject to bad punishments, My children. I say `bad' because many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption. And many will also die when they see what lies ahead of them, as fear will grip their hearts as they run to and fro from their homes looking for a place of solace--a human word that will give them the courage to face what lies ahead. And that will often be death of the body.
    "My child and My children, accept the words of My Mother and My counsel to you throughout the past years. Everything that has been given to you has been given for a reason and will come true. Were it not so I would tell you this now." - Jesus, October 6, 1988

"Your sacramentals shall give you courage in the face of adversity. Know that all will be tried as mettle in the fire.
    "Yes, My child, this great War will come upon you suddenly. Wars, My children, are a punishment for the sins of mankind.
    "Must We send upon you trial and adversity, My children, before you will come to My Son at the tabernacles of the world?
    "You must gather, My child, all of the peoples of earth. Bring them here to pray as a solid wall against the darkness. You hold the balance to hold back this darkness, My child." - Our Lady, March 29, 1975

"My child, you must hasten to send the message throughout the world. Time, time is running out. Do not be concerned. Many arms will be sent to you to help you--peoples of great faith, strength, and courage. You will also proceed with the establishment of the refuge for the good sisters." - Jesus, December 6, 1974

"Mankind brings down upon itself a great sword. The penance will be hard. All who remain with My Son in the light will have no reason to fear. They will go through these days with much courage and perseverance.
    "The greatest measure of responsibility, My children, will fall upon the parents, to see that their children's souls are guarded from contamination. You must pray much in your homes so that you will not be misled. Satan has set upon the world many agents. They work and plan and never sleep, planning the destruction of the human soul. Recognize the faces of evil about you. They will not come in recognizable form or face. Being human, they will not appear to you in their diabolical, supernatural state. They must work through the bodies of men and women, and even--sadly, My child--children.
    "Do not cast aside the armor, the material armor given to you by the Father. You will wear your armor, not as decoration but for protection! Do not take your armor from about your necks because you listen to the jests of others. It is satan who has set them against you." - Our Lady, July 1, 1974

"I bestow upon My beloved children, those of light and faith, the graces for conversion and cure, the redemption of the wandering sheep. Go forward, My children, in perseverance and great courage, knowing that I am with you always." - Our Lady, November 23, 1974

"My child, My tears fall upon you all. If it weren't for My pleading constantly for you before the throne of the Eternal Father, this would have come upon mankind sooner. But now I can tell you that those who will be saved will be counted in the few. Those who will be saved will be counted in the few.
     "My child and My children, I come to you as a Mother of peace, a Mother of love. And above all, I want you to turn to My Son and have courage in the days ahead. Many will fall from the Ball of Redemption.
    "Now, My child, I know that this has been a time of great stress for you. It is urgent that the message from My Son be given to the world." - Our Lady, June 18, 1991

"We wish, My child, that all who have given themselves to the work from Heaven, the mission upon earth, to go forward fearlessly, with great perseverance and courage. Know at this time, My child, and in the future, that no man has precedence over your life. Your life is the eternal life in the Kingdom of the Father. What will it profit one of My children if he gains the whole world and suffers the loss of his soul? Many will sell their souls to get to the head. And what have you gained but eternal damnation in the kingdom of the prince of darkness!
    "There is, My child, great evil in the world. When the world and My Son's houses are united into one, know that the end is at hand. The gates of hell shall not prevail against My Son's House!" - Our Lady, November 1, 1974

Veronica - Our Lady has Her Rosary draped about Her hand, Her beautiful Rosary that has the large beads with the golden Our Father and the white beads that are like pearls. But as Our Lady now is turning and looking over the peoples, the beads are catching the light. It's a brilliant light. Our Lady is glowing; it's the only way I can explain it humanly. Our Lady is glowing. The glow, the light, seems to come out from within Her. It's making a brilliant cast over the whole sky. Our Lady is smiling. I can't see Her features very distinctly, but through the light I can see Our Lady is smiling. And She's bending over now.
    Now directly behind Her, Michael is coming forward. He is tremendous! He's covering the whole sky. There's no way I can give you a full description of his width and his height. It's very awesome. He's not frightening. He fills you with great courage. He's fearless. And you feel, looking at him, that he is truly a warrior from Heaven, a perfect guardian for Our Lady and the Church. - November 1, 1976

"You cannot understand the ways of the Eternal Father, My child. The sheep are now being separated from the goats. Yes, My child, take courage and speak the truth. You must tell the bishop that he has placed himself among the goats, and he must remove himself immediately! The Bishop of Brooklyn.
    "Do not shudder, My child. You must save this soul. Each soul is precious to the Eternal Father, My child. No, you will not be accused of judging, for you are only bringing the Message from Heaven. Hurry now, My child; hasten to send the letter to him. In time you will understand why." - Our Lady, January 31, 1976

"You must all pray for your bishops, your cardinals, and your pastors. It is like an illness among them now going from one to the other. They will have to accept their fate . . . not to take themselves away from the Church, My Church, My children. We do not want satan to close the doors. You must remain in your parish and stand there as an example as you speak with the priests and the cardinals and the bishops. You must keep your courage up and bring forth as witnesses, disciples of the latter days--you must go forward and try to save your brothers, those in the clergy. So few do pray for the clergy. The general idea, My child, is that they have a special passport to Heaven. But that is not true. Their temptations are far greater than yours. Therefore, they are to be pitied. For hell opened up would show unto you the numbers of mitres that have fallen in the past earth-years." - Jesus, April 14, 1984
